Hans was diagnosed with High Risk Stage IV MycN Amplified Neuroblastoma four years ago today.The funny thing is - I don't really feel like reflecting on it today! I don't think I will.
Usually I go through this whole thing on anniversary. Usually.
But, actually, today things are going well and I'd rather worry about Halloween and raking the yard, and keeping kids on track with their school work and upcoming events! I guess I'd rather look forward today than look back.
Hans is a beautiful boy. His life has never been the same since his diagnosis day. None of our lives will ever be the same. The medicines and procedures used to save Hans' life have caused him some serious harm. But, I believe with all my heart, that Hans would choose to fight for this life over and over. He rolls with his punches. Kids are resilient, and Hans is an incredible kid.
I hope science can keep the docs one step ahead of his disease. My heart is full of so many hopes and prayers that I sometimes feel greedy. My prayers are not just for Hans, but for each of these kids in this fight.
Today we will do home school, I will start on painting my bathroom, we will run some errands, get our girl to soccer and back, eat some dinner, hang out, play Sorry! And we will celebrate the fact that we are all here, all four of us. And I cannot tell you the gratitude and thankfulness in my heart for that fact - just that we are here.
Peace, Love, and Cure,
